Congratulations Keith Rabey - Distinguished Toastmaster

Congratulations DTM KR

Glen Abbey Toastmasters Club Member Keith Rabey recently achieved a big Toastmasters milestone - his Distinguished Toastmaster designation.

What is a Distinguished Toastmaster?

The Distinguished Toastmaster is the highest award Toastmasters bestows. The DTM recognizes a high level of achievement in both the communication and leadership tracks in the Toastmasters education program. To be eligible for the award, you must have completed / earned the following (links take you to details at Toastmasters International):

Keith joined Toastmasters in 2009, and over the last 6 years completed over 75 speeches at Glen Abbey, at other clubs, and at District 86 events.  In addition, he held roles as the Glen Abbey Toastmasters Club VP PR, Club President, and Area Director. 

Thoughts On Toastmasters

I joined Toastmasters with the goal to improve my public speaking and particularly my interviewing skills. Table Topics was instrumental in helping me achieve that goal. Over time I have become much more confident and able to stand up and deliver speeches in many situations in my personal and professional life.

One of the surprises I found with Toastmasters was the leadership component of the program. I took on leadership roles on the executive of GATM and went on to become an Area Director serving and leading 5 clubs in Mississauga.

Many individuals have helped me along the way.  I would like to say Thank You to all, who have applauded when I spoke, who have provided verbal or written evaluations. Thank you to all who have encouraged me with “good job Keith!” or a friendly pat on the back.  This is what Toastmasters is all about, as safe supportive environment to learn and develop.

I actively promote Toastmasters when the opportunity presents itself and encourage everyone to sign up and take advantage of this fantastic program!
